About Final Fantasy Tactics in brief
Final Fantasy Tactics is a tactical role-playing game developed and published by Squaresoft for the Sony PlayStation video game console. Released in Japan in June 1997 and in the United States in January 1998, it is the first game of the Final Fantasy Tactics series. The game’s story follows Ramza Beoulve, a highborn cadet who finds himself thrust into the middle of an intricate military conflict known as The Lion War. It received extremely positive reviews from gaming magazines and websites and has become a cult classic since its release. It has been cited as one of the greatest video games of all time. A spin-off title, Final Fantasy. Tactics Advance, was released for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance in 2003 and a sequel to that title. was released in 2007 for theNintendo DS. Various other games have also utilized the Ivalice setting, including Vagrant Story for the PlayStation and Final Fantasy XII for the PS2. It is also possible to recruit monsters into the party, but they cannot change the base squire class. In contrast to other 32-bit era Final Fantasy titles, Finalantasy Tactics uses a 3D, isometric, rotatable playing field, with bitmap sprite characters. Like several installments in the series, it features a character class system, which allows players to customize characters into various roles. It makes extensive use of most of the original character classes seen in earlier Final Fantasy games, including Summoners, Wizards, Priests, Monks, Lancers, and Thieves.
In the game, characters move on a battlefield composed of square tiles; movement and action ranges are determined by the character’s statistics and job class. Another major aspect of battles is magical attacks. Certain magical attacks cause area of effect damage, and many of the more powerful magical attacks require several turns of charging. Like other Finalantasy games, random battles occur on the world map. However, in Final FantasyTactics, Random battles happen only in pre-set locations, marked in green on a world map, and passing over one of these spots may result in a random encounter. Some towns contain Fur Shops for obtaining items by way of poaching monsters. In a few towns, a menu can be opened with several options: \”Bar\” for taking sidequest job offers, \”Shop\” for buying supplies and equipment, and \”Soldier Office\” for recruiting new characters. Some characters also join the player’s party as “guests”, which are computer-controlled characters that fight the player on the side. Once the player has learned all the abilities of a job class, all abilities of that class have been learned. Accumulating enough JP results in a level up; new jobs are unlocked by attaining a certain level in the game. Once a level is reached, a character can gain more JP in that class, which also allows the current character to gain moreJP in that job class in that battle. In all the games, the player can also learn new abilities within each job class within each battle.
